At the very beginning of this fashion story, I would like to thank Visit Qatar for the kind invitation and hospitality. With their help, the fashion stories that you had the opportunity to read during April were created, and we will continue during the month of May, and I sincerely hope that you will enjoy them.
I am sure that there are no people reading the Mr.M blog now who are not familiar with the brand that we will be hanging out with again today in the heart of the Middle East – Aida Barni, a timeless brand of exquisite knitwear that has become a favorite of Mr.M blog readers over the past few winter seasons. This is the first time I have come across Aida Barni summer pieces and I must say I am delighted.
Aida Barni is synonymous with perfect softness and refined Italian processing of cashmere. Last winter we enjoyed the beauty of bright and unusual colors, while this spring I decided to continue in cheerful and unusual tones. Soft, light and warm items made of cashmere are a smart “fashion” investment and practical during the winter period. When you give someone a cashmere sweater as a gift, it is a gift from the heart because a cashmere sweater carries with it a certain symbolism. Also, sometimes you need to make yourself happy with something new, maybe it’s a new hairstyle, or maybe it’s a new unusual sweater that will put a smile on your face!
Aida Barni is a brand that belongs to the Annapurna group. Founded in 1978, the Annapurna Group has become one of the leading Italian and world manufacturers of high-quality cashmere knitwear with its two fashion lines Annapurna and Aida Barni. Annapurna is a name that associates everyone with exceptional mountain landscapes, especially the mountain range in the Himalayas where goats live with their winter fleece, hiding the soft, warm “cloak” that made them so famous. “Made in Italy” is more than a production concept, but this brand has proven to be much more than the just perfect cashmere sweater on a store shelf. It is love at first touch, an impression to remember.
Aida Barni is an imaginative and fascinating name for a fashion line that produces high quality knitwear from the finest cashmere. Aida Barni is a symbol of a lifetime goal for a woman who decided to enter the world of business in the late seventies and reach the very top of this challenging and one of the most difficult sectors of the market. The Aida Barni brand was created as an artistic expression of the way of life and existence, the essence of unstressed chic, refined luxury. A collection for men and women dedicated to everyone who loves timeless and elegant knitwear that encompasses true elegance in the preciousness of materials, shapes and details.
The man who wears Aida Barni knitwear does not follow trends, but creates and adapts them to the needs of everyday life. The men’s collection is made up of cult clothing items of sentimental value, which evoke a healthy and environmentally friendly way of life. Fans of the Aida Barney brand love natural and fine yarns, enjoy comfort, but do not give up the elegance and sophistication of cuts and models.
Aida Barni‘s concept of men’s “sports elegance” is simple and with sophisticated style, but rich in materials and inconspicuous details that make this brand cult because it represents an expression of uniqueness and special class.
The Polo T-Shirt you see in today’s post is from the latest Aida Barni Spring – Summer 2023 collection, in a refreshing red color and made of the highest quality cotton with a special treatment so that you have a cooling sensation on the skin while wearing it. A refreshing color for the new spring season!
You can buy Aida Barni cashmere items in well-known multibrand shops and department stores across Europe and the world and through authorized online stores. When you give someone an Aida Barni piece, it is more than respect and pure love because you are giving a piece in which love for tradition and deep respect for art that is not worshiped every day are woven.
Today, we meet again with an interesting family brand of luxury watches and jewelry, Schroeder Joailliers. This is a story of dedication and love for one’s work that counts over 140 years of knowledge and passion. The story of Schroeder’s jewelry begins in 1860, when Lambert Schroeder left his hometown of Luxembourg to continue his apprenticeship in London and the United States of America.
Returning to Luxembourg in 1877, he opened his goldsmith’s shop in exactly the same place where today’s Maison Schroeder is located. As an extremely skilled and pioneering retailer, passionate about quality and an ambitious innovator, he inspired the core values of today’s jewelry industry.
His only son, Ferdy Schroeder, learned the engraving trade in Paris and took over the company with the difficult task of running it through two wars. His great mastery of his art earned him the prestigious title of Purveyor of the Court, which Maison Schroeder proudly carries to this day. Later, in 1979, Pierre Rossy, Lambert Schroeder’s nephew and current director, joined the company. Under his leadership, Schroeder jewelry expanded internationally by deploying agents and participating in various exhibitions on five continents.
Today, not only his wife, but also his daughters Anni and Sophie joined him in the Luxembourg jewelry house. This fifth generation maintains the family tradition, which combines traditional knowledge and creativity.
Schroeder Joailliers has found a gem in the Swiss Jura: a workshop capable of producing highly sophisticated and refined movements decorated with the Cotes de Geneve, a hallmark of quality craftsmanship. These high precision watches are presented under the Schroeder Timepieces brand. Available in both men’s and women’s models, there are also pocket watches, in short, all of them are a pleasure to wear every day and for every occasion.
During the next period on the Mr.M blog I will show you some of their timeless watch models, as well as some novelties from the new collections. In today’s story I will share with you my impressions of the “L’Intégrale” Watch Collection. “L’Intégrale” presents a new collection with a so-called integrated watch strap, and comes with a guilloché dial inspired by the trees of the Swiss Jura. The collection is available in a version with a Swiss quartz movement or in the high-quality Sellita SW-200 self-winding movement.
This watch is model A60998 AA01 from the Schroeder Timepieces “L’Intégrale” collection, it is made of the highest quality steel, with a blue guilloché dial and indexes as well as Arabic numerals, a date display at 6 o’clock, with a Swiss quartz movement and mounted on an integrated navy bracelet with with a folding clasp.

Today we’re hanging out again with a famous French house whose creations I adore and you’ve seen before on the Mr.M blog.
Today’s fashion story is special because I have the opportunity to show you the eternal SAINT LAURENT sneakers that marked the work of this brand.
